I used this recipe for the children in my Sunday School class. I have never had such participation from the children. I had parents come up and thank me. They said their children came home and told them about their lesson in class. Maggie
What a neat way to teach kids about Jesus! I followed the recipe except added 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract. I used a kitchen aid mixer and whipped on high for 10 minutes, then another 2 minutes and finally another 2 minutes. I got about 28 small to medium sized beautifully white and delicate cookies! I used crushed walnuts in only half the batter. I think they tastes rather good and ate 3 myself.
My kids loved helping to prepare these cookies and they really liked the meaning behind it and understood what Jesus did on the cross for us. I know I'll be doing this every year,and I added some real vanilla extract in with it so it would taste better even though you weren't suppose to about 1 teaspoon, it really took alot of that vinegar taste away.
Amazing cookies!! We now have a new Easter eve tradition! I made the following changes: almonds instead of pecans and add 1 tsp of vanilla for extra flavor. We made these the night before Easter and then brought some to Easter dinner with the rest of the family. They were a BIG hit! My son loved making them and retelling the Easter story to the family at Easter dinner. Everyone kept asking where I found the recipe how we made these and how we got them to be hollow. We will be making these again!
I think this made an impression with my kids on Easter. The "tomb" was... They (ages 4 & 6) helped with each step. I would use parchment paper next time though. They stuck and were hard to remove from the pan.
I think these were very good for what they are. I was much more interested in the scriptural lesson for the kids than I was in the end product. My husband gave them a 3 but ate almost the whole batch and proclaimed them addictive. I added a teaspoon of vanilla during the sugar step without which these cookies would have been very bland. Not bad mind you just bland. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
I was so excited to see this recipe that I have made copies for my children and friends to do with there children. And I know that the women at church will want this recipe. This is such a BLESSING. GOD BLESS YOU FOR IT....
